Coloring Book

This coloring book was originally produced in 2004 by the Gallery in collaboration with Yale University students so that kids could take home images of highlights from the museum’s collection. We’ve scanned and digitized the coloring book from our archives for the enjoyment of our online visitors. Download and print the pages, and color in the illustrations using crayons, colored pencils, markers, or paint to transform the line drawings into your own works of art. We hope this book will inspire you to find other works in the collection and make your own drawings.
